This Holiday season, get a jump start to Healthy Resolutions and visit the Body Worlds: Pulse exhibit before it closes on February 4th.
Get fit. Drink less alcohol. Quit smoking. Spend more time with friends and family. Visit cultural events. Seek out educational activities. With the start of the New Year only days away, many people look forward to kicking unhealthy habits. This unique exhibit features comparisons of healthy lungs to smokers’ lungs, a healthy liver to one riddled with cirrhosis, an obese body, and more than 20 whole-bodies in various athletic poses. Together these specimens offer an experience for the whole family.
And how cool is this? …Independent surveys conducted at BODY WORLDS have revealed that 68% of visitors resolved to pay more attention to their physical health after seeing the exhibit. In follow-up surveys, more than 30% of those polled stated that they had smoked less and consumed less alcohol since visiting the exhibition. The exhibition features real human bodies preserved through Plastination — a revolutionary specimen preservation method invented by German anatomist and physician, Dr. Gunther von Hagens. All bodies on display were donated to the Institute for Plastination in Heidelberg, Germany for use in the exhibition. For more information, visit
